How can we anticipate security issues on urban transport networks in order to ensure that personnel are in the right place at the right time? It sounds like something out of a sci-fi novel, but this is what is currently happening on the Lille metro network, where the project team Inocs has developed an algorithm used to optimise agent's schedules.
In mid-January Inria published its white paper on cybersecurity, highlighting 5 scientific challenges that need to be met for the future. High on the list is the security of cryptographic protocols. This is precisely the playing field of the Prosecco team (Inria Paris).
Security and Privacy
On the occasion of the 12th edition of the international Computers, Privacy and Data Protection (CPDP) conference, Pierre Laperdrix, Walter Rudametkin and Benoit Baudry received the award for their article "Beauty and the Beast: Diverting modern web browsers to build unique browser fingerprints ". The CNIL-Inria prize rewards research undertaken with a view to creating a trustworthy digital society.

Digital transformation opens up a wealth of opportunities, but it also leaves our IT systems and personal data increasingly exposed to attacks. Whether it’s governments or major operators, the risks are substantial from both a human and an economic point of view. With this in mind, Inria has unveiled a new white paper on the subject of cybersecurity, the goal being to take stock of the major scientific challenges and raise awareness of the importance of the issue.
The University of Strasbourg and Inria are giving new impetus to their collaboration in the age of artificial intelligence
The University of Strasbourg and Inria are today to sign a framework agreement that will enable them to give a more coherent structure to their relationship in addition to boosting their shared scientific research projects. In so doing, the two partners will be formalising a shared desire to give new impetus to their collaboration and to share their resources, the goal being to promote the emergence of new research subjects and to boost the impact they already have.
The International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC) is part of a wider strategy aimed at promoting a Europe-wide vision for cybersecurity, a strategy Inria is keen to promote. Find out more about Inria’s competencies in this field, combining digital technology and science.
Prix Leroy P. Steele 2019
Nobody aware of the importance of his work will be surprised to see Philippe Flajolet featuring once again among the biggest names in the world of mathematics, the American Mathematical Society in particular. More than eight years after his sudden death, Flajolet is to be awarded the Leroy P. Steele Prize for Mathematical Excellence on 17 January 2019. He will share this prize with Robert Sedgewick from Princeton University, with whom he wrote the book Analytic Combinatorics , which was published in 2009.
